      Street, Winarnac, Indiana 46996, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the

      exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on
      2008 through 2010 model-year Chrysler Corporation 3.3, 3.8, and 4.0 liter minivans.

      This exemption is based on an engineering evaluation and previous testing Braun

      Assembly do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of
      the vehicle manufacturer.

      Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Fuel Tank Assembly, as
      exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
      vehicle's pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

      Marketing of the Fuel Tank Assembly using an identification other than that shown in
      this Executive Order or for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order
      shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

      In-additionto the foregoing, the Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to
@ review this Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the
      exempted add-on or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of
      Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222 et seq.


This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Fuel
Tank Assembly may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.
